Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Odious or enlightened, they should stand the test of public scrutiny. However, having opinions does not mean hogging the soap box. It seems that with marked frequency, letters to the editor contain the submissions of one particular person sounding off on various subjects.
There are other opinions in the area, some which run counter to some of this persons submissions. I know; I have tried but cant get a word in edgewise. One gets extremely tired of hearing the opposition mantra that Its all Obamas fault. Reasoned argument and critical thinking appear to have been replaced by invective and unreasonable vilification of ones opponents. It is a sad reflection on our current attitude toward manners, morality and the mutual respect so necessary for a truly democratic society. But then one must consider that this a condition that some people desperately wish to prevent.
Sad, isnt it.
Editors Note: The Sun-Stars general practice is to allow a letter writer one published letter every two weeks.
